for comparison it's 600FSU lower than the 7970 but over 1000FSU lower than a GTX 970?
only a 300FSU gain over a 950
and about the same as a 960 [also the 1050ti as shown here is 2.1tflops and the 960 is 2.3tflops]
so avg 45fps max settings 1080p most games? A solid 60 with <2x msaa depending on the games?
I want to know how baby hands got his hands on this GPU, child slave labor at Nvidia? Jen-Hsun Huang's grand son?
All jokes aside a very decent bump over the 950, however rumored pricing puts it at the exact same price as 3gb 1060, so 1gb less vram higher core count and clocks, just go with 1060 3gb for any decent performance.

So they can only guarantee a speed, encase of poor binning, higher clocks on the cards = more deterioration over time, if they maxed it out it may not reach the guaranteed specifications nearing the end of warranty, and therefore more people would RMA it
Also, they want the performance/watt and hopefully the 6pin is optional [some low end or 300watt PSU don't have a 6pin, and as the GPU only draws 75watts at stock it can draw it from the motherboard, so hopefully you don't need the 6pin in to power on the GPU]Edited by Chaython - 10/10/16 at 8:58am
